    Firstly, let me start by thanking author Tina Gayle for restoring my faith in Indie books. It was lovely to read a book that was well crafted and not littered with spelling and grammar mistakes. There were still a couple but at no point did they draw me out of the story or hinder my enjoyment of Birth. Right, now on with the review. Birth tells the story of Brie Sullivan, an executive wife that lost her husband in an accident that claimed four men in total. From the start, I was gripped by the concept, as it is every wife and mother’s worst nightmare. Imagine the horror of finding out the husband you adore and the father to your two children has been killed. Then add to it the bittersweet torment of finding out you are pregnant with his child. You must now face an uncertain future, raising three children alone when all you ever wanted was to be part of a family. While this is a nightmare scenario for any parent, I actually saw this play out when a very good friend of mine died overseas. She left a husband and three very young children behind, and being in a foreign country, we were heavily involved in the whole tragic affair. It was heartbreaking and I saw firsthand how hard it is to carry on when your spouse dies unexpectedly. This book brought to the forefront a lot of the emotions of that time, which really helped me to connect to the characters and to feel the pain they were feeling. The story starts after the birth of Brie’s daughter, Isabella. I imagine that parts of her pregnancy story unfolded in Book 1 of The Executive Wives – how Jason, who also lost his father in the crash that took Brie’s husband, has been helping out around the house, and was her support person when Isabella was born. But now Brie is struggling to adjust to this new life that has been thrust upon her. She is stressed out by her older children, totally sleep deprived and lacking the energy or motivation to care for herself or her house. She knows people are judging her but what can she do? Propose to Jason, that’s what. It might seem like her proposal comes out of left field and stinks of desperation but I had to keep asking myself, in the same situation, would I want to do it alone or would I be looking for someone to share the load? Brie isn’t looking for a husband, as such. She is looking for a father for her children and who better than Jason who has already shown how much he cares for them?However, as much as Jason cares for her – maybe even loves her – he recognises the proposal as a plea for help. Jason is pretty sure Brie is suffering from post natal depression and her desperation for a husband stems from her inability to cope. He turns down her proposal but when it becomes obvious Brie will do it with or without him (even offering to pay a man to marry her) he realises he will have to marry her or risk losing her forever to another man. Birth is almost a love story in reverse. The marriage comes first, then the sex, and finally the love – at least from Brie’s point of view. It is tender and poignant at times, and full of strong descriptive passages. Birth reads like a Mills and Boon novel, at least in terms of its love scenes, but it has more depth than a M&B book and far more heart. While I enjoyed the book right from the start, it took me about five chapters to really fall in love with the characters. From there, I was not able to put the book down until I finished it. I also liked how it explored the struggle Brie’s daughter Allison had with accepting a new man in her mother’s life. Was quite surprised by the scene where Hagan realigns baby Isabella’s back and stops her from being such a fussy, crying baby. Made me wonder how many babies have been in pain and is that why they cry so much. My only complaint overall was that I wanted to know more about the other Executive Wives as well, but I know their stories unfold in the other books within the Executive Wives series. I’ll just have to be patient and wait for them to come out.Overall, a really well written, beautifully paced Indie book with a heart of gold.

    The second book of Tina Gayle’s Executive Wives series, BIRTH is a riveting story of a woman with numerous problems. Brie has just had a baby, has lost her husband in the last year, and is suffering from postpartum depression. Talk about stress. She isn’t a kick butt kind of gal, but she comes up with a plan to tackle her problems.Find a husband, she decides since she’s the marrying kind. Jason Clark is recovering from the loss of a loved one, in his case his dad. They both have issues, but as the story progresses, they help each other become more independent. Brie grows into a confident woman. Jason, having gone through life solo so far, realizes how much he wants a family.Tina Gayle not only builds a caring relationship between the two, but she also includes a cast of characters that the reader can love and look forward to their stories in the future Executive Wives Club. As an author and also a reader, there isn't more I would ask for?Kathleen Rowland, FALLEN EVERMORE

    Brie Sullivan never expected to propose to a man, let alone with a ready made family in tow. Widowed and struggling with a newborn and two other children, Brie decides she needs a husband to save her family. Jason Clark has not turned Brie down but he wants a wife who will love him. He cares deeply for Brie but questions her motives. When he decides to marry her, they both find themselves adjusting to a new family and a wife. Learning to communicate will be a key factor in their future, will they be able to learn to work as a partnership?I thought this was a fantastic read. I felt for Brie, she is struggling and I think doesn't know how to ask for help. Jason was a sweetheart, he had to become an instant dad and learn to deal with Brie who at times seems more fragile than he can remember. Look forward to more in this series.

    Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by FabiolaReview Copy from the PublisherIt exec’s baby is the second volume in the Executive wives club. I reviewed the first volume Marketing Exec’s widow which I liked a lot (review here https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... ). I was looking forward for the second volume especially as I already knew who would be the heroes.Indeed, in Marketing exec’s widow, Brie Sullivan learned she was pregnant from her late husband. She also was grappling with her father who wanted her to come back to the familial home and leave her friends and the life she built for herself. Brie always has trouble being opposed to her relatives, beginning with her father. She has received a very strict education where the father’s word was sacred and no one had the right to be against his orders. For all that, she hasn’t been abused, let’s say just infantilized. As we go along the book, we learn her late husband had taken the reins from her father and that everything was managed by him. Brie settled only for being a good mother and housewife. The author endeavors in It exec’s baby to make her more responsible for her actions and to respect her own choices despite all opposition. Tina Gayle almost succeeded to convince me. However, in order to better perceive the heroine’s evolution, it would have needed a real confrontation with her father, which never happened and which I found frustrating.I also found the heroine’s turnaround about sexual relations too sudden. Indeed, after a first half of the novel being sexually interested in the hero, her reluctances were quite strange when acting out. Of course, the explanation is given but it arrived a little too late for me to believe it really.The story takes place several months after Marketing exec’s widow. The heroine has given birth to her daughter and the hero, Jason Clark, in love with her, is biding his time to act. Jason also is the son of one of the widows of the group, which disturbed me a little at first LOL.I really liked the hero but sometimes I found him really clumsy, especially toward Allison, Brie’s eldest daughter. Yet it was obvious she was just waiting for a gesture from Jason and I found it too bad he lets the situation degenerate for so long. I don’t really like ungrateful children in romance, however for once I completely understood and accepted Allison’s rejection, especially as she wasn’t mean either. Fortunately, he succeeds in making up for it and the family can be formed naturally.Besides, I found there was a big lack of communication between our heroes. It’s too bad because some conflicts could have been avoided. However, I really appreciated that these conflicts don’t last and the heroine take the lead, showing she’s learning little by little to assert herself.Regarding the three other widows, we see again our couple from the first volume, Jennifer and Hagan, who have a new project revealed in It exec’s baby. We also have a better insight of the two last widows, Sylvia and Marianne (Jason’s mother) who will be our next heroines. The author puts a lot emphasis on the relation that appeared between the four women since their husbands’ deaths. They even are at the point where there’s no secret between them and where they help each other. For all that, that doesn’t encroach upon the love relationship, which is still the principal element in a romance, and that’s really appreciable.The sex scenes come lately but are quite intense. Careful however, the heroine has been a widow for a year, and she often makes a comparison between what she lives with Jason and what she lived with her husband. If you don’t like this kind of details, you’ll have troubles with this story.The epilogue leads to the next volume, CFO’s affair, which will feature Sylvia. I understand the author who wishes for us to read the rest of the series, but I’m not really fan of this kind of epilogue that doesn’t concern our current heroes. The last volume, titled Dilemma of the CEO’s widow, hasn’t been published yet.The author’s style being flowing and dynamic, I read the story in one go. And despite the negative points I noted, I really liked this story and I appreciated the evolution of all the characters, main as secondary. I’m curious to know what will happen to our remaining widows.

    *3.5 Stars*IT Exec's Baby is the second book in the Executive Wives' Club series. While I did not read the first book of the series and was able to enjoy the book, I think it would probably benefit the reader to read the series in order. There were several things that I still don't understand even having finished the book, like what kind of accident killed the Executives?Over all this was a well written story, with some really interesting characters and an easy to read plot. The relationship between Jason and Brie is sweet and though there is erotic scenes in the book, it's never too heavy or intense. While I felt that the book was well written, I did have some minor issue which brought it's rating down for me. First, I had a bit of a hard time connecting with Brie as a main character. She seemed a bit whinny and didn't have much self-esteem when it came to handling situations. Yes, I get that she had post-postpartum depression, which bring us to another matter... one minute she has it and is struggling, the next minute she's taking medication and is "all better". I was also really struggled with this book because you never see the love between Jason and Brie blossom. When this story begins they're already smitten with each other, though they are unwilling to tell the other person.*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinions*

    Received in exchange for an honest review through NetGalley.3.5 / 5 starsI really dislike giving it ratings less than 4 stars, but there comes a point when a 4 just speaks too highly of the book.Was the writing good and well done?Yes.Was the characterization on point and done correctly?Absolutely.So what was my problem?I felt Brie was whiny, to be honest. Initially, I could understand. She's a widow with 3 kids -- but come on now, hun, people do this all the time. I understood her depression, but she should have done something about it.Then enter a really nice man and family friend, and purpose to him? Wasn't my cup of tea...I liked Jason loads better than Brie; he'd make the book a 4.5 easily, with the exception of his furry at the end of the book. Thankfully he leaves the house but I want a fan of his anger -- do couples fight and yell? Absolutely. But there's anger and there's fury, and O felt he crossed that line.Brie's self-confidence, or lack thereof, was a major part in the low rating too.I wanted to like the story and am partly sad I didn't...
